STeaP #21 - Upton's China Pu-Erh
Joe and Brandice try the Upton Pu-Erh, a fermented/aged tea. We don't really know a lot about pu-erh, but this particular tea seems to have an enthusiastic following, and can taste very different, depending on age. Chair at A Tasty Beverage did a review of some pu-erh teas as well, and we've rounded up some informational links on pu-erh for those of you who may be as new to this type of tea as we are:Pu-Erh Wikipedia // Pu-Erh.net // Pu-Erh on About.comHave any of YOU tried pu-erh? Tell us what you think, and be sure to keep an eye on STeaPtv.com for all of our STeaP updates.

Steeping puerh for 6 minutes on a first infusion is a big no-no unless you are using a very small amount with a larger volume of water as in competition brewing. My recommendation on trying any tea that is new to you; read about it. Find a knowledgeable resource. There are plenty of blogs and forums out there.
